    NEW MANAGER
    The FAW have confirmed the appointment of Gary Speed as the new Wales National Team Manager. "It's something that's very difficult to turn down when your country comes calling, I am a very proud man at this moment to be asked to be manager of Wales." - said Speed.

    Gary Speed becomes the eleventh manager of the Wales International football team.

    Gary played eighty-five times for Wales a record for an outfield player. In addition, he captained the side on forty-four occasions.  In an illustrious league career, he made 677 club Appearances, scoring 103 goals, either as a midfielder or defender.

    Born in Mancot, Flintshire on 8th September 1969, he started his career with Leeds United in 1988, making his debut as a 19 year old. In 1992 he helped them win the First Division Championship and he was to make almost 250 league appearances for the Elland Road club. He also appeared in the 1996 League Cup Final.

    In 1996 he joined Everton for a fee of £3.5m. His next move was to Newcastle United in 1998 for £5.5m He appeared in the club’s two FA Cup Final defeats in 1998 and 1999, as well as playing Champion’s League football.

    His fourth club was Bolton Wanderers, who he joined in 2004 for a fee of £750,000. During his time at the club, he notched his 500th Premiership appearance. He was to go-on to make a then record 535 Premiership appearances. In 2007, he became First Team Coach at Bolton Wanderers for a short while, before reverting to a player-only role.

    His final move was to Sheffield United in 2008, initially on loan. After making the decision to finish his playing career at 41, he concentrated on coaching at the club and was then promoted to manager early in the 2010-2011 season. He was awarded the MBE in 2010 in recognition of his services to Football. - statement from faw.org.uk.

    Speed has yet to appoint an assistant or a backroom team.

    Interviews for the job are set to take place over a two-day period over the next couple of weeks. The list includes four Welshmen in Brian Flynn, John Hartson, Dean Saunders and Chris Coleman, as well as Lars Lagerback, who has managed Sweden and Nigeria at international level, and Lawrie Sanchez, who impressed while in charge of Northern Ireland. With Ian Rush being ruled out. [source guardian.co.uk 22/11/10]

    Reports are suggesting that Ian Rush is actually in the frame for the Wales job.  [source football365.com 23/11/10]


    The bookies' favourite Lars Lagerback has said: "I had a chat with the CEO of Wales, Jonathan Ford. Now I am waiting for something concrete. I don't have the job yet. I don't know if I will get it, and I don't know if I will accept it if I get it. I think it's too early to start talking."   [source eurosport 02/12/10]

    “We are down to a strong shortlist and I’m happy with the level of candidates because I believe they are all capable of doing the job. It has been important to keep the process tight, but we want the best possible person. We’re looking to schedule the next stage which will be a presentation interview and then make the decision. After that, hopefully we have a short negotiation stage as we want to appoint someone by mid-December.” - FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford. [source dailystar.co.uk]



    Over the next few weeks the Football Association of Wales will be looking to appoint a National Team manager. The process of looking for a manager will begin immediately and applications from Pro-Licence coaches are invited between now and the end f the first week of November.

    This will be an ongoing process but the FAW would hope to have a new National Team manager in place by December 2010.

    The priority obviously is to qualify for the major finals but the manager will be expected to play a significant role in the overall development of Welsh football.

    The Football Association of Wales will hold a press conference on Friday, October 15th to answer media questions regarding the process.

    Troy Brown, Paul Dumett and Tom Bradshaw are all uncapped at this level.

    Manager Brian Flynn: "We played Austria in Parndorf at the end of last season in a friendly and had a very good work-out. We lost the game by a single goal, but it gave me the chance to start looking at potential new players for the future. This continues now with the return friendly. I need to replace the likes of Shaun MacDonald, Mark Bradley, Hal Robson-Kanu etc who are now too old for the squad, but I am happy that we have some good youngsters ready to step-up. Some were with me last week in our Under 19 mini-tournament qualifiers in South Wales, so I know plenty about them. I hope that the Newport fans will turn-out in strength to support the match at their local club, as well as other from across South Wales and the rest of the country too. These lads are the future and deserve our support".
